Oh Christ, don’t tell me Fairfax still thinks listing random tweets without properly contextualising their authors is journalism? Arsehats!

RT @renailemay: I’ve aggregated the excellent @iTnews_au and @zdnetaustralia videos here: http://bit.ly/a6xlMu

RT @Cacotopos: Internet 1.0 was an indie effort; Internet 2.0 is just a cheap sequel so big companies can cash in on the franchise. [Oui.]

via Twitter Web Client

OH: “They’re already introducing Internet 2.0 and I haven’t even finished reading Internet 1.0 yet.”

RT @SnarkyPlatypus: The future is middle aged geeks. Who knew? [There’s a word for people like you, and it starts with a “c”.]

RT @byteside: Byteside Tech 2.1 now online! All about ‘The Future’, featuring @mpesce, @stilgherrian and @thetimdean. http://j.mp/bsc2sX

Yes @nathanlindorff the technical stuff in pars 43 to 78 is delightful. http://bit.ly/a2L9jw

via Twitter Web Client

Especially when it is based, in part, on “certain notorious facts of which the Court takes judicial notice”.

via Twitter Web Client

I do like a Federal Court judgement with “a brief technical interlude into the operation of both the internet and the BitTorrent protocol”.

via Twitter Web Client

Reading Cowdroy J’s findings. http://bit.ly/a2L9jw Learning much more than those watching Question Time, I suspect.

via Twitter Web Client

@ChrisOber Why “fuss” over Cowdroy J’s ruling? It sets legal precedent. Actual law doesn’t always match simple analogies.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to ChrisOber

Erm @mjec the full judgement and the 23-par summary in is at http://bit.ly/a2L9jw

I think I’ll tire rather quickly of people tweeting the entirety of Cowdroy J’s decision in 140-char chunks.

via Twitter Web Client

Um @MatthewProuse Cowdroy J actually ruled privacy laws would NOT prevent iiNet following up copyright infringers.

Sometimes certain people I know can be such fucking princesses!

@R_Chirgwin I grant you, Sen Conroy does have a rather full workload this year. ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to R_Chirgwin

Oh @pam_rosengren note that comment from Sen Conroy was back in March, before the hearing. Out of order, I thought.

via Twitter Web Client

@R_Chirgwin An appeal is expensive and uncertain. Political donations and outsourcing the work to Parliament is cheaper. ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to R_Chirgwin

Well @anthonybaxter @R_Chirgwin there is immense pressure globally from the film industry to introduce 3-strikes laws.

via Twitter Web Client

@ApostrophePong When was the last time you cleaned your DVD drive? Cleaning kit in my office, in “PC Maintenance” drawer.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to ApostrophePong

Given Sen Conroy’s rubbishing of iiNet http://bit.ly/Hw8XN and AFACT’s “confidence” http://bit.ly/aKJ92U expect new laws.

via Twitter Web Client

@R_Chirgwin Seven, Nine or Ten don’t have to send a chopper. A few Cabcharge dockets is fine by me. And hookers.

Hey ABC people, I’ll be at Ultimo at 1745 for Statewide NSW so if anyone else wants me… ;)

And now the requests to talk on the radio have started coming in… ;) I wonder what they want me to talk about?

Every time I type “Justice Cowdroy” I think of cows. This must stop. It’s disrespectful. And I’d rather think of goats.

via Twitter Web Client

@robcorr Your compilation of AFACT slapdowns is a good read. http://bit.ly/aUOJRi Please check your email. ;)

via Twitter Web Client

Writing. Writing words. Words full of glory, wonder, excitement, amazement and some facts.

My bit of “A Series of Tubes” recorded! Gawd, nothing to talk about this week, eh? ;)

via Twitter Web Client

Dear @KevinRuddPM your ill-informed amateur art criticism is tedious. Better: Jokingly brush off questions, “Oh what do I know about art?”

via Twitter Web Client

Fri plan: 0900 record “A Series of Tubes”; writing, if anyone wants me; a brief client webby task; de-pain shoulder; TGIF; quiet night.

@SnarkyPlatypus Bonjour. Malgré la pluie délicieux, les migraines persistent. Je dois rencontrer le kiwi guilleret. Et vous?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

Good advice from @MargaretSimons on journalists asking to be, y’know, paid. Good for other freelancers too. http://bit.ly/9uT1YG

@Warlach You don’t need me to predict the weather. Doesn’t @mpesce already do that in his first tweet?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to Warlach

@BernardKeane The more I read of the findings, the more I think Cowdroy J did not think highly of AFACT at all.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to BernardKeane

Ta for the headache advice @carolduncan @michaelelliot though this is more about my lingering neck and shoulder injuries.

@djackmanson Perhaps put those thoughts into a comment on the article so everyone else sees them too. ;)
